Hong Kong protesters boo China anthem

HONG KONG CITY 11 Sep (ANA) - Hong Kong's protest movement made its presence felt in a sports stadium and shopping malls on Tuesday. 
Fans attending an Iran v China football match drowned out the pre-game Chinese national anthem with loud booing.
Protesters have also staged flash events in shopping malls, singing Glory to Hong Kong which has become an unofficial anthem of the movement. 
The protesters won a major concession last week when the extradition bill which sparked the unrest was scrapped.
But this has failed to end the unrest as protesters continue to demand full democracy and an investigation into allegations of police abuses. 
On Tuesday night, thousands of protesters gathered in shopping malls across Hong Kong chanting slogans and singing Glory to Hong Kong. 
Another video showed protesters chanting "Go Hong Kong" - a phrase that has been used frequently as a sign of encouragement. 
Shopping malls have been the scene of clashes in recent weeks, with one incident in July seeing riot police fight battles with protesters inside a mall in the district of Sha Tin.(ANA)
